Director-actor SJ Suryah who is presently busy with his film, Isai, is set to re-make a film he directed in Telugu, Komaram Puli which had Pawan Kalyan in the lead role.
Sources said that the film, has been titled Ezhumalai/Chitra and it is expected that the director will play the lead role in the remake. Apparently, Suryah wants to establish himself as an action hero.
Meanwhile, it is said that Isai will be a musical entertainer, with interesting twists and turns in the second half. Fresh face Savithri plays the female lead.
Interestingly, Suryah will himself score music for the film with some advice from Oscar-winner AR Rahman.
Suryah will begin work on Ezhumalai/Chitra after completing Isai. It may be recalled that Komaram Puli was a big flop in Telugu. So it would be interesting to see how the Tamil version works.
